Chris Paul making progress, may play in Game 3 vs Rockets
The Clippers stepped up without Chris Paul in Game 1 but could have used him in Game 2. And need him back as soon as possible. Here’s the OC Register reporting:
The Clippers left Houston with a win, plenty of confidence and homecourt advantage. But the biggest, most important thing leaving town with the Clippers was a point guard who wasn’t any more injured.
Chris Paul, the man whose last-second shot sent the NBA’s defending champions packing in Round 1, didn’t have to push it in Houston. He didn’t need to try and play to prove the Clippers can be competitive.
Instead, he rested. He healed. He put himself in position to possibly come back.
Paul went through a comprehensive workout on the court Thursday, giving him his best chance to play Friday in Game 3.
